NY 77 :: Coolest Year In Hell

NY77: The Rap Battle! :: In which Caz and Wiz Take On Bambaataa…

The 1977 retrospectives continue. (Actually, “The Bronx Is Burning” has improved.) But this week on Saturday check VH1 for what might be the best doc yet: NY 77 :: Coolest Year In Hell. It features Kool Herc, Grandmaster Caz, the great DJ Disco Wiz, Lee Quinones, and many more, including many punkoids, and a cop or two. As this dude was saying to me over and over last week to the point where I wanted to slug him, “Good stuff! So enjoy!”

Warning: They filmed me for this one. But watch it anyway. I’m pretty sure they didn’t use my mugly ugg in this.

Thanks to Wiz for the previews. BTW here’s another:

+ Blackout 77!

    Damnnnnnn, the blackout clip brings memories of that summer. I had just arrived from Caribbean, so I was used to blackouts. I had no idea what the big deal was till the next day. Visually fresh presentation, too. I wanna see the whole thing!
